Bay Rugby has set up a give a little page on behalf of the Union’s affiliated rugby clubs and called it the “Pay it Back” campaign.
COVID-19 has impacted sports nationwide and it is still unclear the long term impact this has had on our rugby clubs in the Bay of Plenty.
We are asking our community to help “Pay it Back” to our rugby clubs with donations to support rugby in their local community. It could be that instead of your daily coffee you put that money towards your club instead, every little bit helps.
All donated money will go towards clubs and the community. For example: purchase hygiene supplies, subsiding club fees for whanau in need, buy the paint to mark the fields and replace those stolen socks from last year or to put on meals for club volunteers!
The following Bay of Plenty Rugby Clubs are participating in the "Pay it Back" campaign and are who you can donate to: Arataki Junior Rugby, Arataki Senior Rugby, Edgecumbe, Greerton Marist, Judea, Katikati, Kawerau, Marist St Michaels, Mt Maunganui, Murupara, Ngongotaha, Opotiki, Paroa Junior Rugby, Poroporo, Rangataua, Rangiuru, Ruatoki, Tauranga Sports, Waikite, Waimana, Whakatane Marist
Please give generously and support the people of Bay!
All funds raised will go to the club that you nominate when donating.
Please reference the name of the club you are donating to.
The Union will deposit your donation into the clubs nominated bank account at the conclusion of the fundraising period.
